Mem1 - Stationary Drift

by Mem1

Published January 15, 2009


"Stationary Drift" by Mem1 (Mark and Laura Cetilia) is a calm and beautiful 4-track EP combining electronic sounds and cello to an organic musical symbiosis.

This EP starts with "Hanging Valley", a easeful and meditative piece, with soft droning cello sounds and electronic glitches like footsteps in the snow. "Accretion" begins with a deep growling tone under a layer of light sound-textures, ending in a loud merging movement. You can hear dripping notes and oscillating high tones like glaring sunlight in "Penitentes", named after a special snow formation found at high altitudes. And in "Stationary Drift" you can hear a sonic fog, everything covered with a nebulous blanket.

A perfect soundtrack for a walk in the snowy forest, listening to crunching snow under your feet and feeling the cold and clear air around your nose. Or to cool down a bit if you live in the southern hemisphere with some warm summer weather these days.

Subject: Great discomforting atmospheric textures!
I quite enjoyed this textural piece. It's all solid sound, long drones that are just short enough to keep the attention. It's dark, but not haunting. Nicely done.
